Origin/meaning

Orange and white are the colors of the Signal Corps. The telephone poles are symbolic of the construction activities of the organization. The five flashes are symbolic of the five battle honors of World War II; also the flashes are symbolic of messages carried over the wires. The three poles and five flashes are suggestive of the numerical designation of the organization, viz. 35.

It was redesignated for the 35th Signal Battalion, Army Reserve on 1 November 1956. It was rescinded on 4 May 1976.
